VEGAS Pro Feature Requests

1 ... Also on track colors, somewhere along the way under MAGIX ownership those colors have become pastel thus making event header information very difficult to read due to a distinct lack of contrast - the header information is a white font color. Please make event header information legible via using a white font color against a dark track color (as currently occurs) but a black font color when a light track color is used (which means most track colors).

2 ... It would be superb if the centre volume control handle on audio events included a back click context menu to allow a user defined minus volume to be used. All too often, I need to expand the audio track height in order to lower the volume of the event to the level that I want. What I am asking is akin to that available when wanting to user set the volume on a node on a volume envelope.

Using the volume FX is of course an option but it is so much quicker to simply adjust the event volume in the quickest way possible particularly when wanting to balance the volume with surrounding audio event volumes.

Please return to VP18 UI, or at least make it optional. The old icons and track information were much easier to read in VP18.

Den: exactly!!
Very strange icons in V19, i can't get used to since months.

Please let us color events, like you see in Cubase, where tracks can give their color to events by default, but you can recolor each single event. It would make life so much easier if you have to handle a huge number of clips and events in a project and want to group or catalogue them into certain different categories.

Like to see a new feature to facilitate multicam... the ability to specify a camera lut to be incorporated into Vegas' proxy file generation. Would suggest the ability to specify a camera lut during the media import process and then apply the lut to both the media and proxy generation. And automatically bypass the media lut when the proxy is enabled in Preview and Draft preview modes. So that those modes could be selected in multicam edit mode to remove the performance drag of dynamic lut application. Would also suggest a preference to disable this new feature so the import process remains unchanged for those who never use camera luts.

For Titles and Text it can be challenging to edit a paragraph of text to fit. Could we get a word wrap feature and the ability to made the text input box larger so we don't have to scroll as much? Right now increasing the media generator window size just yields extra border it doesn't make the text input box any larger.

From a UI perspective are we supposed to edit in the preview window? If so why does text get smaller or larger in the input box? It makes it harder to see what has been input given the fixed (and small) input box size.

1. Color different clips on a track

2. Need a good titler with some basic presets!! (lower third, kinetics, etc). Newblue is nice, but it's 3rd party. A few basic ones would be nice.

3. Better Transitions (rolls, wipes, swooshes)...without having to go to 3rd party again

4. Round of applause for great work you guys are doing!

Hello, I really don't want to make graph/value presets with normal graph/value presets settings (slow fade, fast fade) in 3D feature from vegas, there are different methods to make graph/value but it takes me a lot of time to deal with it. In short please put graph/value in percent vegas. - video sped up by 600

please update more graph/value presets. please! I really want this.please bring it to suit the people of today. do this if you cannot bring graphs/value.
or just bring graph/value to all effects, vegas pro 21 is about to come out and still graph/value has not come to all effects and 3d.

I would like some indication on the asset in Project Media to show that it has been used on the timeline.

Also to be able to Lock and Unlock an entire track at the track header.

Screenshot below is of Pinnacle Studio 26 Ultimate. The features I am requesting have been available for 11 years.

And much longer with some software. The Asset indication has been requested on this forum many times. Okay if you change the asset view to details you can see how many times it's been used. That's useful but an indication on the thumbnail would also be great so you can instantly see whether an item has been used.

Perhaps there's a technical reason Vegas cannot do this?

We look at video and image thumbnails while editing. Not a "detail" view of files. Yes, looking at the details will show you what has been used and how many times, but that requires extra unnecessary (at least to me) clicking of the mouse. Just a small NOTICEABLE checkmark/indicator on the thumbnail would be a nice quick fast reference.

And let's not forget the ability to lock an entire track at the track header.
